Help a study abroad student eat Rome!

alantz21 | | Mar 25, 2014 06:41 AM

I'm a study abroad student in Rome who's been here for four months. As a poor college kid, I've been waiting with anticipation for my parents to visit for a week in April. I want to show them the city and especially it's restaurants. I've come up with this itinerary and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions/comments to improve my list! (If you have any Rome sights suggestions I haven't seen, those are also much appreciated!) Thanks everyone!

Thursday night-
Dinner at Il Localino for fish!
Wander Borghese Gardens

Wander around Central Rome (see the big stuff)
• Lunch at L’Asino D’Oro
• Spanish Steps
• Trevi Fountain
• Aperitivo at Salotto 42
• Dinner at Armando Al Pantheon
• See Pantheon and Piazza Navona
• Gelato del Teatro

Vatican & Coliseum/Forum
• Morning in Vatican (Sistine Chapel, Basilica, St. Peter’s Square)
• Lunch at L’Arcangelo OR La Campana
• Coliseum
• Aventine Hill-Keyhole, Orange Garden, Mouth of Truth
• Wander around Trastevere
• Freni e Frizoni for Aperitivos
• Dinner at Cesare al Cassoletto

Campo de Fiori/Jewish Ghetto
• Mercato di Campo (Roscoli for Pizza Bianco)
• Late lunch at Nonna Betta in the Jewish Ghetto
• Dinner at Da Danilo

Monday/Tuesday I was hoping to get great pizza (Sforno or La Gatta Mangiona?)

I want to experience the best of the Jewish Ghetto (especially artichokes!) but have read a lot of controversial reviews. Does Nonna Betta sound like a solid choice? What about Sora Margherita?

I've heard great things about Testaccio restaurants, but it doesn't sound like there are a lot of sights out there to justify the trip. Is there another great neighborhood for food and atmosphere (Monti or Prati maybe?)
